(1 file, 2 obsolete files)

Open some Tabs & browse to some pages
Try to use items that need the current tab context
from the toolbar or "Additional Tools and Features" (in Toolbar)

Function will fail or miss the current displayed tab page context.

Tried built in:
Share This Page-> Result Nothing. Expected: Sharing selector should appear
Email Link -> Result Nothing      Expected: Default email program should start and show email with url

Tried Extension:
Nightly Testers Tool - Insert Build ID into textbox (when textbox is active in current Tab - Result: Dialog offering to copy to clipboard 
Expected Result: BuildID should be added to textbox

I suspect that all these issues are probably caused by the same root cause.

This seems to be several bugs.

1. Sharing was fixing by bug 915547.
2. Email link is fairly simple to fix. I will attach a patch.
3. The Tester tools bug is essentially caused by 921935.

Fix Email Link

Review of attachment 8544700 [details] [diff] [review]:

This misses CustomizableWidgets' implementation of the email link button (it did say "toolbar items" in the summary...).

It also seems to me that if we're updating this anyway, we should just pass gBrowser.selectedBrowser. The MailIntegration method can take a browser and use a sendMessage with the url being browser.currentURI.spec and the title being browser.contentTitle. That avoids the CPOW and doesn't need any additional message passing, AFAICT. Would that work?

Nightly Testers Tool works now on:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:37.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/37.0 ID:20150106030201 CSet: 2a193b7f395c
Inserted the above string directyl into the text box. 
so one less issue to fix.
Email Link Function works also on:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:37.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/37.0 ID:20150106030201 CSet: 2a193b7f395c

Click email Link Icon, Email Program opens with link pasted into draft email
